The Sustainable Traditional Buildings Alliance
An alliance of the UK's leading organisations associated with the conservation and improvement of traditional buildings
The UK Centre of Excellence for Traditional Buildings
Knowledge and guidance from the UK's leading experts
We are the home of Responsible Retrofit and are one of the founders of the Whole House Approach in the UK.

The aim of the STBA is to deliver a sustainable traditional built environment in the UK

The balance between a building’s Context (its history, setting and future), its potential for Change (in a dynamic world), and its demands for Continuity (ongoing maintenance), is challenging. The unique structure of the STBA with its three co-Chairs representing Industry, Heritage and Sustainability enables us to deliver a truly Whole Building Approach to the future of traditional buildings in the UK.
